2016-12-23 - Jimmy and Annie Mae Woods opened the doors of James Woods Funeral Parlor, December 15, 1928 in Pasadena, California. Please see "Our Heritage" page. Today, 88 years later the Woods-Valentine Mortuary is still a Black owned, 3rd generation family business in the San Gabriel Valley. Some 4 years after Fred and Arzella Valentine purchased the business from Uncle Jimmy's widow Annie Mae, the mortuary was re-named, Woods-Valentine Mortuary in 1958. Our motto "Our Aim is to be Worthy of Your Confidence" continues to resonate to each family served throughout the 88 years. The third generation of the Woods-Valentine business, Janyce Valentine and Gail Valentine Taylor, love and appreciate all of the people who have come through the doors and placed their trust the Woods-Valentine Family. May God richly bless our families.
